If you want mudguards that are made like the originals and fit out of the box, Vintage Steel are the guys that do it.
After a few emails and measuring the remains of the originals I placed an order for 2 pairs of guards for 1914 2 3/4.
2 weeks later they arrived, all i can say is, awesome, everything the correct size, the valences and belt guard all rolled on to the guards just like the originals, every thing the correct size
You get what you pay for, they are the highest quality.
I will be ordering for my veteran Triumph soon, they are the only manufacture I have found that rolls the edge bead correctly, round, not flat.
P.S. UK buyers, don't forget the import duty (its worth the quality)

Hi Michael, Mudguards and brackets all arrived ok. I am seriously impressed with quality and fit. Great job. Now the hard bit to fit them! You don’t fancy a trip to Trigg do you? 😊 All the best for now. Best wishes for the future. Mike (Trigg, WA) BMW RS54 July 2018
Hi Andrew and Michael,
many thanks for the quick turn around on my guards, it made things very convenient travelling through the south west and being able to collect on the same trip. As you can see from the attached photos I am in the process of a pre-assembly, verifying how this basket case goes together, and the guards have made a big difference as I now have something to attach everything to. Still a fair way to go, but I'm getting there. Thanks again for the great service, I am thrilled with the job you have done. I will of course be letting in everyone I know on the fantastic work you do, and recommending they get in touch.
Best regards,Andrew (Perth, WA) Malvern Star Autobyke July 2018
I have received the (Bugatti) guards and are delighted with them. I am putting the word out.....
Many thanks. Rob. (NZ) June 2018
My (Douglas) guards arrived today. They look great and fit easily within the frame and forks. Thanks very much for the exceptionally speedy service and delivery!
Will show your work to others here and will keep you in mind for any future projects.
Cheers, Doug (Adelaide) June 2018
The Pup guards arrived last week (or earlier?) and are magnificent ... congratulations and many thanks for your help. If anyone asks I will will be able to give them nothing but glowing reports. All success in the future for you and Vintage Steel.
Thanks again, Russell

THANKS GUYS: The guards for my BSA A29 fit like a glove. Thanks to Michael and Andrew. Chris, 1929 BSA, VIC Australia, Dec 2017
Hi Michael & Andrew, I received the guards last night and wanted to thank you for a first class job, the workmanship is perfect and I’m so happy I found you guys. Hope to do business again soon. Cheers, Robbie, 1932 BSA, ACT Australia, Aug 2017

Hi Andrew, Fenders arrived and look great - width, height, radius profile to the templates all seem right on target. Hoping to have them initially fitted up soon and will shoot over a picture. Thanks again for working with me to get these dead on accurate.
Appreciate it, Paul, 1913 Thor, Az USA, Jul 2017
Hi Guys, Just wanted to let you know I am very happy with the mudguards you made for me. They are worth every penny. Thanks, Walter, Vintage Trailer, Ireland Jun 2017)
Hi Andrew, got the guards this morning and they look excellent. The front pressing fits perfectly in the forks and the back also sits good in the frame. I’ll have to purchase some tyres and wait til I fit the wheels before I fit them but they look like they will fit perfect. Thanks for the extra effort in getting these right!

FaceBook Post..... Details provided on this website by a fellow motorcyclist.
Today I Received my mudguards for the 1935 Triumph L2/1, which Vintage Steel out of Australia completed for me. Talk about going the extra mile.....they knew someone who had an original 1935 L2/1 and asked them if they could take the mudguards off their motorcycle, and copy them for me, and also at the same time; now have a new product to sell on their website. I am truly thankful, and as well; impressed with the quality of work, and metal used to make them. In comparison to the Indian versions....I would say 1000% better, completed very quickly, professionally, and well packed......well impressed. See for yourself........Vintage Steel .....awesome job!! Thanks again, Zach, 1935 Triumph, Bermuda, Apr 2017
Special thanks to Peter Lawson who loaned us is L2/1 Triumph to copy (VS).

I wish you all to know about the superb reproduction rear mudguard that has just been made for me by Vintage Steel in Australia (I am in the UK).
All I can say, is following my commissioning of the manufacture (why not the REC?) of a rear mudguard for my 1937 Sports Special. That their communication, speed off delivery and quality of workmanship is totally exceptional. Please see the photo of my mudguard against Roger Gilett's original mudguard (he kindly allowed me to take missing drawing measurements). Note the beautifully shaped "duck tail" end that has been superbly folded and rolled.
The Sports Special rear mudguard is exactly the same as the 37/39 Ulster rear mudguard, other than it has the addition of the two side panels for mounting the twin toolboxes, so they can also provide.
Please be assured that I have no other connection with Vintage Steel, other than being a very satisfied and impressed customer.
